How we can help

Writing Centre instructors can help you with any questions relating to your writing process, including but not limited to:

  • understanding a course text;
  • planning an assignment;
  • getting feedback on a draft;
  • making sense of errors that your course instructors have flagged in their assignment feedback;
  • engaging with, integrating, and documenting source material using MLA, APA, Chicago, or any other academic style; and
  • understanding academic integrity and avoiding plagiarism.

In accordance with our usual practices at the Writing Centre, instructors and Peer Tutors are not available to edit/proofread your work.

Instead, we will highlight errors in a portion of your assignment, provide some general comments, and point you in the direction of relevant resources. Please see our statement on Proofreading vs. Instructional Editing.
